First Vice President/Investments

Like many young men, I was greatly influenced by the professional experiences of my father and grandfather.  My father served as a Corporate Human Resources Executive who believed in owning high-quality, historically attractive stocks.  My grandfather became a stockbroker upon his return from World War II.  Unfortunately, he died at the young age of 45, only seven years after his return.  I was always intrigued by stock ownership and graduated with a B.A. in Economics from the Virginia Military Institute and earned an M.B.A. from Winthrop University.  

After college, I began a career in human resources with Burlington Industries.  Within the next 13 years, I was promoted and offered manufacturing plant executive-level positions with Duracell and Becton-Dickinson.  I also served as a Captain and Company Commander in the 108th Training Group of the United States Army Reserve from 1980 to 1988.

Having succeeded in my father's vocation, I felt called to my grandfather's profession of helping people manage their wealth.  Walking away from a promising corporate career was difficult with a family and mortgage, but in 1993, I took a leap of faith and started my new career as a financial advisor.  I earned the Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS) designation in 2002.  I have never looked back and have thoroughly enjoyed helping hundreds of people pursue their long-term goals.

Active in my community, my memberships include past campaign chair of the United Way, past committee chair of the Red Carpet Breakfast, past president of the Sumter Rotary Club, past trustee and past board chair of Palmetto Health Tuomey, and past board member of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) Keydet club.  I am a current member of the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce and the Sumter Touchdown Club.

In an effort to provide my clients with more effective service, I teamed up with my son – Joshua Glenn, Financial Advisor – in 2018 to form The Glenn Group.
